3 Courses to earn a Certificate of Leadership Excellence

We are pleased to announce that the Institute has partnered with Dalhousie University’s College of Continuing Education to provide students with three exciting new courses; Leadership Dynamics, Ethics in Action, and Mastering Strategy.

This demanding trinity of courses provides learners with the opportunity not only to learn about leadership, strategy, and ethics but also to learn how to lead, how to be strategic, and how to make ethical decisions. All three courses are learner-centric and take a constructivist approach to learning that combines active, experiential, social, and problem-based learning with more traditional pedagogical approaches.

People who successfully complete all three courses, achieving a grade of at least 80% in each, will qualify for a professional certificate of Leadership Excellence from The Business Excellence Institute.

Commenting on the Dianne Tyers, Dean of the College of Continuing Education, said that:
the College of Continuing Education at Dalhousie University is delighted to partner with the Business Excellence Institute to offer the three courses leading to a Certificate in Leadership Excellence as, together, the courses provide learners with the core knowledge, skills, and critical thinking required to become effective leaders who are able to make informed, ethical, strategic decisions in complex, dynamic situations… and that’s the kind of leader that all types of organizations need right now.

John Bourke, president of The Business Excellence Institute, noted that Dianne and the College of Continuing Education were well known to the Institute’s board and that they were happy to enter into partnership to provide the courses as they respected Dalhousie and the work Dianne was doing to progress the College of Continuing Education on its journey to excellence.

Both organizations look forward to providing these three impact-driven, rewarding, relevant learning experiences to people to help them develop as leaders who can navigate and adapt to today’s ever evolving challenges. Leadership Dynamics and Ethics in Action launch next week. Mastering Strategy launches in January.
